3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Poured clear, garnet-tinted cola brown with a short, sticky beige head. The aroma picked up sweet vanilla over roasted black and coffee malts.. touches of licorice too.. well-presented. The flavor found well-roasted chocolate, coffee, and licorice notes at the core.. vanilla and charred roast laced throughout.. finished dry and roasty, with a hit of acidity. Medium-bodied at most on the palate, with moderate carbonation.. good balance throughout. This was surprisingly good.

A solid American porter, it is rich, but not overly robust, this brewery has some potential.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle. (Friar Tuck) Springfield, IL.
Looks like a glass of Coke.
Mild bready malty aroma with dark bread and mild hops.
Sweet malty flavour with mild roastiness, some bread and some sweetness. Sweetness makes this a bit unpleasant.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at the Potosi brewpub in Southwestern, Wisconsin. Pours an opaque dark brown colored brew with a creamy beige head that has some nice retention and excellent lacing. Aroma of toasted dark malt, chocolate, floral hops and hint of toffee. Taste is medium bodied, some metallic texture with flavors of toasted dark malt, chocolate, a hint of lactose and some floral hops. Finish is semi-dry and has an excellent balance of toasted dark malt and mild bitterness that slowly disappears.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Old Fashioned. Opaque blac, nice off white head. Roasty chocolate aroma. A touch of a watery mouthfeel, but the hits the mark stylistically. Mossy, with some borderline Stout nuances. A little thin bodywise, relies a little heavily on the specialty malt. Drinkable, but still sub par and unimpressive. Mild chocolate bitterness in the aftertaste.

Deep mahogany red color with a foamy brown head. Roast grain nose. Sweet caramel flavors with roast grains, burnt coffee and a gentle hop presence. This is a nice porter.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a deep brown almost black with a big head. The aroma is lots of chocolate, mild hops with some earthy and floral character in there as well. The flavor is fruity, not in an overbearing way... or even a dominant way, but itís the first thing that hits you when you taste it. There is plenty of roasty coffee and a lot of nice hop bitterness. There is a mild smokiness to the beer as well. Overall this was the best beer I had on Saturday.
This is a world class porter and a crown jewel in the lineup of a very new, but very welcome addition to the Southwest WI brewing scene.
